Migration, impacts and causes, a success story with the 1st Social Bridging Platform

July 2, 2021

Today, the context of migration faces many contradictions. Many companies around the world are dealing with a recruitment crisis. Despite the stressed labour markets, many qualified workers on the other hand, who would like to migrate to other countries, are prevented by governmental efforts to curb migration. Telemigration is one way to solve all these contradictions.

Migration, impacts and causes

Migration brings huge benefits, fueling growth development and entrepreneurship in both countries people come from and in those they moved to. It leads to more innovation, better educated workforce, and greater occupational specialization. It can give substantial economic benefits with a higher overall productivity.

Even though immigration helps to reduce any labour shortages, on the other hand, it is argued that immigration can cause issues of overcrowding and congestion and many other social and economic challenges.

Furthermore, individuals who migrate experience multiple stresses including the loss of cultural norms, religious customs, and social support systems, adjustment to a new culture and changes in identity and concept of self.

The number of vacancies proposed by many companies abroad attracts a large number of workers. In Africa, for example, too many people have graduated from a local university, but only few of them manage to find jobs in their home countries, and many are waiting only to be recruited, especially abroad.

How COVID-19 contributes to economy?

COVID-19 has been a double-edged sword – so to say – for labour markets. While border closures to reduce the spread of the disease hurt many businesses and workers, COVID-19 also contributed to the acceleration of the digital economy. Telemigration is one idea in which people from different parts of the world work in virtual offices.
